The TS-431P2 4-Bay NAS Enclosure from QNAP is a high-performance NAS that provides feature-rich applications for home & office use, including backup, synchronization, and remote access needs on a secure private cloud. Users will also be able to stream their multimedia library using DLNA and AirPlay, as well as build a surveillance center and use Snapshots to restore their NAS in the event of data loss or a system breach.
The TS-431P2 is powered by a 1.7 GHz Annapurna Labs AL-314 Quad-Core processor, which will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously. The 1GB of DDR3 RAM has a configuration of 1 x 1GB, can be upgraded to 8GB, and will allow quick access to frequently used file and programs. Network connectivity is achieved using the two Gigabit Ethernet ports which support failover and dual IP. There is also support for JBOD, single disk, RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and + hot spare, each of which offers performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both.
This 4-bay enclosure has the ability to natively house both 3.5" and 2.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s and SATA II 3 Gb/s hard drives or SSD drives, and screws are included that accommodate each drive size. With both Gigabit Ethernet ports in use, the TS-431P2 can deliver read speeds of up to 221 MB/s and write speeds of up to 195 MB/s. When using both Gigabit Ethernet ports with volume encryption, read speeds reach 220 MB/s and write speeds max out at 160 MB/s. Using the three USB 3.0 Type-A ports this QNAP NAS can be connected to other devices, such as QNAP expansion units. To help bolster security, AES 256-bit encryption helps to prevent sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breaches.
QNAP's TS-431P2 4-Bay NAS Enclosure operates using an included 90W AC adapter that runs using 100-240 VAC. Also included are two Ethernet cables, a power cord, 3.5" HDD flat head screws, 2.5" HDD flat head screws, and a power cord. Protection is provided by a limited 2-year warranty.
